    Vortex is lifetime no hassle, Meopta is 30 yr no hassle if I'm not mistaken. I'm betting the turn around on issues with the vortex are faster but overall they are both good warranties.

    Bitterroot...how did you pack that Swaro 85mm? accross the top of your pack or actually down in one of the pockets?

    Vortex takes really good care of the troops. 9 times out of 10 the military pricing blows my dealer pricing away.

    I carried my spotter in one long pocket of my pack and the tripod in the other.

    Meopta USA's warranty is lifetime and transferable, and they have an excellent CS reputation, although you don't hear of it being used much.

    Vortex' warranty is the industry benchmark, they just fix it.

    Hardstalk is right. A phone call or email to their customer service will get the process started for mil discounts. I'm comparing mil discounts for the Razor and the Meopta in this case. The difference is about $350. The best value is definitely the Meopta with that discount. I'm just torn between saving the 350 for a slightly smaller spotter, or get the better overall optics (seems to be the general opinion) in the larger slightly less backpacking friendly package.
